The Wolkomir Family
Chicago$15/hr  |  1 kid
Our Daughter, Milena "Mila" will turn 5 years old in July. She is loving, happy, energetic and curious. Of course, like any little child. Mila loves animals, especially dogs (as well as our dog Benji a cockapoo), being outside, coloring/painting, the park/playground, and some shows (TV when allowed to watch) .... She is currently enrolled in a swim class, a gym class, and soccer. She has also taken theater classes and loves pretending and dressing up. She is starting to eat more things, but loves bread, cheese, and fruits. She is allergic to peanuts, so we don't keep any in the house and have medication for her (just in case). Mila is in school at the Lycée Francais de Chicago.

We are looking for someone to join our family to look after Mila on weekdays during the workday, and to contribute to the household responsibilities (for now in the house, given the Covid-19 issues). We have had a live-in au pair for the past 5 years, but our current au pair is going back to France. Phone and car to be provided, as well as private room, bathroom and semi-private living space in a single family home.
The Nilles Family
Irving Park, Chicago$18/hr  |  2 kids
I have 2 kids, 9 and almost 6. They are both intelligent, and creative. I will be traveling for work the last 2 days of each week, and need someone from about 8PM on Wednesday to 8PM on Friday. The children have school during the day from 8:00-4:30. I don't need anything more than taking them to/from school and making them dinner. No housework other than just the regular stuff the kids did that day. Both Children attend the German International School, and it would be great if you spoke some German, as their homework is primarily in German.
We are not super outdoorsy, but there is a huge park behind us, and the kids love it. They are both interested in technology, and art. My oldest is learning violin (beginner), and the youngest piano (beginner).

What is a Live-In Nanny in Chicago, IL

A live-in nanny provides in-home child care and resides with the family that they care for. They are usually full-time and sometimes support with housekeeping, errands and other household responsibilities. Some live-in nannies stay with their employer’s full-time or they live with their employer’s for a portion of the week and spend the other portion at their home. A live-in nanny schedule can include nights as needed like any other nanny job, however, the employer should always offer compensation for any additional coverage.

Types of Live-In Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Chicago, IL

Before you start looking for a live-in nanny job, it's essential to make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities by learning about the different types of nanny jobs and how they compare to each other.

Most nanny jobs vary in responsibilities and time commitment (e.g. the number of hours worked each week or the length of the commitment). There are temporary live-in nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer live-in nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary live-in nanny positions, there are differences between full-time live-in and part-time live-in nanny jobs. Given that live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want, it's very important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

How to Interview for Live-In Nanny Jobs in Chicago, IL

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a live-in nanny job interview. Here is a list of some live-in nanny interview questions you should ask:

  • Can you tell me about where in the house I will live? Will I have my own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc? Do I have my own entrance?
  • What are your expectations around the cleanliness and tidiness of my living quarters?
  • What level of privacy can I expect after hours?
  • Will I have a curfew in the evenings when I am in charge of the kids the next day?
  • Can I have guests over during my days off and only with the employers prior agreement? Am I allowed guests overnight?

Beyond asking these questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
